The purpose and mandate of the Church is to be a witness about the redemption found in Jesus Christ says Florent Varak, co- author of “The Gospel and the Citizen.” In this interview with hosts Stefan Radelich and Valerie Lowe of The Harvest Show, he says that the church needs to be busy proclaiming the good news found in Jesus Christ. This interview was first broadcast on Thursday, September 1, 2016. (He first appeared on the program on August 15, 2016.)
Florent is the co-author of “The Gospel and the Citizen” with Philippe Viguier and is the director of church equipping for Encompass World Partners. The book, first published in French, offers guidelines to assist Christians in determining how best to participate in the political arena as citizens who have a dual citizenship: in heaven and in the country of their residence.
